Gosh! There are only five days now until we head for Walt Disney World. Our itinerary (see below) looks very busy, but actually it gives us plenty of time to chill out by the pool at Old Key West, or head to Disney Springs to wander and shop and nosh. Today I will do laundry, so I can get my clothes into the suitcase and be mostly packed to go. I have so much stuff in my huge suitcase, that Mike may need to pack some of my clothes. But that means I’ll have plenty of room once I unload everything at our villa. My suitcase will be much lighter on the way home. 🙂

Meet me at the Kingdom!
There are just 44 days now until our vacation to Walt Disney World. On our last full day in Florida we will once again travel to Magic Kingdom, and while there we will have lunch at Tony’s Town Square Restaurant. This restaurant often gets a bad rap in reviews, but I have never had a bad experience here. Lady and the Tramp is one of my favorite Disney movies, so Tony’s holds a special place in my heart. We’ve eaten here with several of our family members who have traveled to WDW with us, so when I walk in I am immediately in the midst of good memories. Here’s what Disney has to say:
Everyone loves Italian, but this is no ordinary Italian restaurant! It’s where Lady and the Tramp had their first kiss.
Relive the Romance
Share spaghetti and meatballs and more at this fun eatery near the entrance of Magic Kingdom park.
Step inside this charming turn-of-the-century trattoria on Main Street, U.S.A., with its whitewashed balustrades, French doors and expansive front porch, which offers fantastic views for people-watching. In the lobby, Disney’s 1955 animated classic, Lady and the Tramp, plays in the background while pictures of its famous love-struck stars grace the walls.
Hopeless romantics are bound to gush over the central fountain depicting the cute canine couple, and more characters and scenes from the movie get you in the mood for food, friends, fun times and perhaps even amore!
Reservations are recommended and can be made up to 180 days prior to your visit.
Meats-a-ball and Much Amore
Tony the restaurateur welcomes you with hearty Italian meals that your family will howl for.
Begin your meal with eggplant involtini or crispy calamari. Then, feast on favorites like grilled jumbo shrimp, ravioli or a tantalizing Italian trio dish featuring 3 classic dishes: chicken parmigiana, fettucine alfredo and spaghetti with pork and beef meatballs.
While gazing at your loved one over a steaming espresso or cappuccino, shiver with helpless delight—bite after bite—as you share ambrosial treats like gelato, tiramisù and seasonal cheesecake. Molto delizioso!
It will be a bittersweet meal, because Emi and family will travel home that very evening. But it wall a lovely way to wrap up our time together.
Meet me at the Kingdom.
Day 404 in small victories on my way to meet Mickey (26 days to go)
You guys, Disney Dining Buddy is a GREAT site! I signed up, and for $8 they kept watch for a dinner reservation at Tony’s Town Square Restaurant in Magic Kingdom on December 8th. THEY CONTACTED ME WITH AN OPENING TODAY! I had checked every sit-down restaurant in Magic Kingdom for that date. There was nothing available anywhere. Mike and I have tickets to attend Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party that evening, and I had hoped to have dinner in the park before the official start time at 7:00 pm. Thank you Disney Dining Buddy! I am quite simply over the moon!
Tony’s Town Square Restaurant, for those of you who don’t know, is a restaurant themed after Lady and the Tramp. Remember the scene where Tramp and Lady share a plate of spaghetti and accidentally have their first kiss? That scene happens behind Tony’s Restaurant. I love that movie; I love that scene from that movie; I love this restaurant. It’s my favorite Magic Kingdom full service restaurant. I’m so pleased!
Meet you at the Kingdom!
